"Oh were I king of Ireland' 1 . 



From Mrs. Close, 




My love she is far sweet - er than an-y flow'rthat blows, the lil-ly or car- 




na-ti-on, the pink or blistering rose. Her love-ly form and fea — tures with 




such a graceful mien, oh love it is a kill— ing thing, Did you ev-er feel the pain? 



But, be it so, or be it not, 

Or be it but a chance, 

The very first time I saw my love, 

She struck me in a trance. 

I'll be a good boy and do so no more . 



Her ruby lips and sparkling eyes 
They so bewitched me, 
Oh were I king of Ireland 
Queen of it she should be . 



From the county of Cavan.

It was an old Beggarman weary and wet 
And down by the fi-re side he sat. 
He threw down his bags and his broken staff, 
And merrily he did sing. 

My dear said he if I were as free, 

As when I first came to this countrie 

I'd dress you up. all beggarly. 

And away with me you should gang - oh. 

Chorus \ With his pipe in his jaw, 
And his jaw full of smoke, 
And the dribbles hung down 
To the breast of his cloak 
His bag on his back 
And his staff in his hand, 
He's a jolly old Beggarman - oh.
